Released in the UK on 31 May 1977, It’s What You Value was the third of three singles released from the Thirty Three and 1/3 album, all of which failed to chart in the UK. It was not released as a single in the US.
The idea for the song came about after Jim Keltner requested a Mercedes sports car as payment for appearing with George on his 1974 tour. The B side is an old song of George’s, dating back to 1969, and almost appeared on All Things Must Pass.
The pictures below are of my solid centre first press copy (there were no push out centre copies) which has the matrix numbers K16967-A-2 and K16967-B-1. It also has ALLEN hand etched into the run off on both sides which was left by Allen Landau, the master vinyl cutter . Visually the record looks in excellent condition and plays that way on the A side. On theB side a little very light crackle can be heard. It is housed in a WEA/A&M/Warner Bros company sleeve (there was no picture sleeve with this release) that is in excellent condition.
One of George’s rarer singles there is currently only one on eBay (for sale or sold) that’s available for £25 whilst on Discogs there are seven, ranging from £11 to £25 with postage on top.
Estimated Value : £15 – £25
